Rhaena Targaryen is the younger twin sister of Baela Targaryen. Although the show seems to have given the sisters a noticeable age gap. Rhaena was known to be a great beauty with songs and poems written about her. She and her sister were beloved by the smallfolk. The Targaryen sisters are now half-sisters to Rhaenyra’s children since her marriage to Daemon Targaryen in episode 7.

Princes Daeron Targaryen and Joffrey Velaryon

The third son and last child of Queen Alicent Hightower is still unconfirmed to be appearing on the show. We saw Prince Joffrey Velaryon as a newborn but no actor has been confirmed in his role for the adult version. Whether we’ll see them on the series or not is a waiting game.
